Frankie: Boy. You wanna talk about some pain? I bought one o' them linoleum knives the other day, you know?
Willie: With the double edge?
Frankie: So, I go home, you know, and I spread my toes apart and I just start sawing, back and forth and back and forth, you know?
Willie: Mm hmm.
Frankie: And I take a little thing o' Tobasco sauce, you know?
Frankie: And just dump it on there. Talk about a hotfoot, mister! Boy, that was rough.
|2 days 4 hours ago||I was asked to go all "finish him" on a pinata at child's party||
The kids were making no progress, so my neighbors asked me to bust open the pinata. One problem: this was a girl's 4th birthday party and the pinata was a Rapunzel lookalike. So in front of a mixed group of adults and little kids, I beat the hell out of a princess. I thought it was a bit disturbing, but the kids were too happy to get at the candy and prizes to care. I definitely prefer the pinatas that open with strings.

If you did well enough running your city, the city council would approve erecting a statue of you, which you could place anywhere at no cost. Selecting it would reveal its year of origin and "number of pigeons perched."

I think that's a board participant in the background.

|1 week 1 day ago||Thanks, I couldn't remember how it played out||
I remember seeing replay angles but not whether the officials did the same. Toussaint's reversed TD against OSU in 2011 would have been a good occasion to avoid replay.
|1 week 1 day ago||Our first TD against MSU in 2006||
Terrific athletic move by Arrington and certainly his body was in bounds when he caught the ball, but thanks to Henne trying to throw this to Tacopants instead of the wide-open 6'2" guy, the first part of him to hit the ground was his torso and that landed out of bounds.
It was a second and goal from the 13 and we would have won handily with 3 or 0 points on that drive, but I remember the team rushing up to kick the PAT before they could review it. The replays did not show Arrington getting a foot down, the AOTS and shadows made it clear that he didn't.
0:50 of this video:
|1 week 1 day ago||The ball was held between his wrists as he hit the ground||
not in his hands, as his fingers are extended and not wrapped around the ball. Plus you could say that his left arm was the first part of him to hit the ground and that the arm landed out of bounds. A heroic effort on Cole's part but I don't believe it was a catch. Certainly many plays before and after that have been ruled no catch despite being more credible.

The one where they lost the ball was iffy. Questionable mechanism of losing the ball, the running back's helmet and then arm hit the ground before the ball came out, plus he appeared to recover it on the ground but Norman Boebert must have pulled it away from him in the pile.
Two plays later, Anthony Thomas fumbled but was ruled down, that was pretty bad. Ball out well before his knee hit the ground. Thomas scored the go-ahead TD on the next play.
Of course then Illinois had 2:30 to try for another TD but Todd Howard forced another fumble near midfield on Illinois' second play. No replay available online that I can see but it looks a bit iffy also.
Fourteen years later, Illinois fans are still cursing about this game.
|1 week 1 day ago||Michigan at Michigan State 2005||
Incredibly inept use of replay. Review it for a few minutes and still get it wrong. I guess if you have a cool Samoan hairdo and Brent Musburger has an orgasm while you're running toward the endzone, it's not possible to get the call right. Danielson actual makes sense during the replays.

|1 week 1 day ago||That was awful||
I couldn't help but think of that when they (IIRC) awarded Notre Dame the ball after the Henne QB sneak attempt in 2005. Like they could tell what the hell happened in that pile.

I graduated in 1996 so I was well into the post-UM phase by this game. But I attended every home game except the close win against Iowa. I can't remember where I watched the game. Great win but very weird. Kinda like the game against OSU.
That horse racing gif is, well, tremendous.

Ahhh, that's better.
I like the brown facemask idea, not sure why they ever used gray, but white is okay. Everything else is rubbish.
I have an idea they didn't consider: more pumpkin pants. Always pumpkin pants please:
